“A really great family run Taverna”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Situated opposite the town beach in Elounda. The staff all related from 2 families are all very friendly and accommodating. We visited twice the food both times was excellent, it is really worth a good 4 1/2 rating. The same chef has been working at the restaurant since its opening bar a short period. I tried the Mousaka the second time and in over 20 yrs of traveling to Greece it has to be one of the best ever. The house wine for us is always a must and Vachus' is excellent both red and rose tried. Be prepared for a wait for your meal. A very big recommendation.

“Disappointment in this restaurant”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Visited in 2013 and food and service was good. Visited in June 2014 and just got in before a
party of 10. They were more concentrated a on this party to the detriment of other diners.
Food was rushed, service was take it or leave it even though we spent 40 euros for 2 people.
Would not recommed this restaurant again.
